With an age gap of six years between our oldest and youngest child, it can be hard to find activities the whole family can do together.  So when I heard that I could bring my toddler to Sky Zone, I was ready to make it a full-family outing.

We found Sky Zone tucked next to Watson’s on 29th St in Kentwood.  When you arrive, plan for a few minutes of filling out waivers and deciding if you want to wear shoes or go barefoot.  (No street shoes are allowed- this helps keep the trampolines clean.)

You also decide how long you’re going to jump. You’ll be given a sticker to wear that corresponds with your jump time.  Prices correspond to the length of your jump time and start at $9 for 30 minutes.

One hour of jumping is plenty, especially if it’s your first time.

By the end of our hour, every person in our five-member family was sweaty.  (Side note: I wore yoga pants and a sports bra and was glad I did.  Other people had shorts or jeans on. Just make sure to wear clothes that are comfortable to move in and don’t overdress- you’ll get warm once you get moving.)

Our first stop was the big trampoline in the back.  It only took a few minutes for my kids to find their jumping legs.

This mom was a little more cautious, but even I was jumping over dividers, dancing, and doing seat drops by the end of our hour.  I found myself dancing along to the upbeat music more than once!

There’s more to Sky Zone than just the big jumping area, though.

My son (8 years old) could not get enough of 3-D Dodge Ball.  The games were well supervised and fast-paced, making them fun and accessible for a wide variety of ages.

There are three separate smaller courts at Sky Zone that can be used for Dodge Ball, separating jumpers out by size during busy times, and private rentals.

My two girls (ages 2 and 5) spent a considerable amount of time jumping into and climbing out of the foam pit.  The staff did a great job making sure that people didn’t jump on each other or get hurt.

We left Sky Zone right before lunch time.  Everyone was a happy kind of tired.  My son is looking forward to going back with some of his friends from school.  My husband wants to get some friends together and play 3-D Dodge Ball.  I’m hoping to go back and try out the SkyRobics with a girlfriend or two.
